What should I know about Paremyd before taking it?

Before using Paremyd (hydroxyamphetamine hydrobromide, tropicamide), tell your doctor if you have any type of glaucoma or are at risk for developing it. If you have angle-closure glaucoma, you should not use the medication at all. Your doctor will also want to know if you have a history of certain other medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, heart problems or an irregular heartbeat, an overactive thyroid, or diabetes. If the medication is going to be given to a child, you should be aware that children may be more sensitive to Paremyd's side effects.
